Master Gardener intern class to begin in Clinton

CLINTON — Those who want to learn about gardening are invited to participate in the Purdue Master Gardener intern class starting on Feb. 14 at the Clinton Public Library, 313 S. Fourth St., Clinton.

There will be 12 classes total, meeting once a week on most Thursdays through May 2. One Saturday class is scheduled on May 11, with a field trip to Windy Ridge Daylily Farm (near Hillsdale); and one hands-on plant propagation class is scheduled at the Ivy Tech Community College greenhouse in Terre Haute. All classes are from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Space is limited; pre-registration is due by Jan. 30.

Instructors are university and industry experts from Indiana and Illinois that teach about topics that include honeybees, plant and soil science, vegetables and herbs, landscaping, weeds and pesticides, herbaceous and woody ornamentals, plant nutrition, fruits, lawn care, and identification and control of pests and plant diseases. Cost for the program is $78 per student and includes the new 582 page Purdue Master Gardener Manual, 50 Trees of Indiana Booklet and handouts. Couples may share materials for $117.

The Master Gardener Program is one way the Purdue University Extension Service puts knowledge to work and helps people grow. First, the Master Gardener Program helps gardeners grow by providing them with intensive education in horticultural principles. Participants, in turn, share their knowledge and help others grow by providing volunteer leadership and service to their communities in educational gardening activities.
